I suspect that most web frameworks will bypass the 'cgi' module as much as
possible; it's too messy to deal with and too difficult to clean up.

I'm puzzled by the WebStack package.  Why implement a layer of sanity on top
of various dubious frameworks, instead of just implementing that layer of
sanity directly?  But then it's just another framework, and it becomes
apparent that definitions of sanity differ.
